the false narrative, president obama himself. we take up all of this here tonight with the republican strategist who served in the bush white house, and also, negative economic reports having little effect on the market today. lou joins us as does the head of the catholic league, bill donohue on where the obama administration funds anti-christian art, if you can call it art, and the fight with planned parenthood. we begin with the obama administration still trying to put forward a narrative that matches facts. terrorism is a foreign word for this administration whose lack of transparency is further qomp kateed by a complete lack of security in the consulate in an unstable, violent, muslim nation. we have the latest in this live report. katherine? >> well, thank you, lou. associate for the director of national intelligence issued a statement that seemed to give cover to the administration while at the same time acknowledges the benghazi terrorism by those affiliated with al-qaeda. there was information that led usthe intelligence community, to assess the attack began spontan

whatever sound bite of the day is and to build a narrative around that. that doesn't reenforce the larger one for the romney campaign. look, the american public is well aware of the economic situation our nation is in. it's a recovery, but the slowest and least satisfied since the great depression. something has to be said about that and directions have to be pointed at the future of the policy. that's what the governor is going to do tonight, but what has been interesting and not necessarily in every intans helpful to it, so to jump on one each day and pretend that's the news or the driver instead of having larger narrative about the present and future. >> dan, if you believe in that larger idea of the narrative, what should the narrative be for romney tonight and should it be let's take this one great idea, pound it home as many times as you can or hope something sticks? >> no, the former. look, american presidential elections are usually decided on which candidate the public at large feels has the best vision of the future. our presidential elections are generally speaking, not about t

"the hill." i would start with this. i'm always interested in the sort of campaign narratives, the narratives by the media about the candidates. all year this year obama was basically ahead in the polls, a winner's narrative. romney with a winner's narrative. i sense it's changing with big bird and "sesame street." sort of becoming self fulfilling. i'm wondering if biden is not perceived as the winner of this debate tomorrow night, is that going to make the narrative problem a loss worse for the obama campaign? >> it is if the polls that were taken out in the field in the beginning of this week are the same as the ones we saw that were taken, you know, friday night and in to the weekend and they continue to confirm that mitt romney's really surging in all the right places and that would become a problem. if there's sort of, you know, a draw between biden and ryan, where we say, boy, they both really did pretty well. ryan held his own, biden didn't say something crazy and they both have a lot of knowledge if not experience but they're credible and qualified and the obama ticket didn

thursday morning the narrative of this race is going to change. >> romney has been preparing with senator rob portman who filled in as obama during john mccain's 2008 prep. the president practicing with jor kerry playing the role of romney. kerry is a good fit since the parallels between his '04 and current one is overwhelming. can romney get the post-debate bounce kerry did in '04 and take it one step further and turn it into something kerry couldn't do eight years ago. in '04 president bush had a six-point lead before the debates but kerry's performance boosted him tying the men for the final debate but it was senator kerry in december '04 and not president elect kerry. the national polls are close her today than eight years ago but the numbers in key battlegrounds today tell an obama victory story. democratic strategist steve el mendorf, kerry's deputy campaign manager in '04. how are you? >> good, how are you. >> tell me about why your guy won the debates and lost the election and what that says potentially about this dynamic and this race right now is this. >> i think any cha

president's narrative, we're moving in the right direction, don't change horses, don't go back to a playbook that didn't work, the george bush supply side stuff that i think he can legitimately tie to mitt romney. he had a narrative that says the economy is moving in the right direction. i think this job report actually strengthens that narrative. much more than levels variables, like the level of the unemployment rate, it's momentum that i think forms voters' views on the economy. >> thank you jared bernstein for coming on. >> thank you. >>> who is that masked moderate man on the debate stage, the guy who plans no $5 trillion tax cuts? who won't cut education, insists his health care plan covers people with pre-existing conditions. it's the same guy who now says his 47% comments were wrong. did mitt romney take his mask off or has the emperor got no clothes. >>> also, we're beginning to learn more about the flawed strategy that caused president obama to lay a debate egg wednesday night. one thing they agree on, it can't happen again. it best not happen again. >>> and unemployment r

immigrant background. so i think seeing both the narrative, the immigrant narrative as a value-based experience that you can connect to other minority and other americans is really important. you know, it's step by step at the local and state level. in places where i think at the local level there is a lot more willingness to embrace those individuals because they're part of the community. and there isn't that other -- i'm not saying that it's all love and kisses everywhere. >> right. make it look like yes, it's a campaign. >> there is that less of a sense of otherness if you're working with the person in the community, if they're a parent of a kid in your school. and so i think starting at that level does make a difference. frankly, the local and state level is where people sort of cut their teeth in terms of national office. >> chloe, i'm interested in how race or ethnic identity ends up laying on top of the immigrant identity. in part, because if i look at you, you don't look like an immigrant. in part, because the language of immigration has come to mean all these other racialize

keeping with their narrative, megyn, that usama's dead, and gm is alive and well. usama's dead, but al-qaeda's alive and well and killing an american ambassador, three others and destroying property. the fact that this president would have the audacity to put his political ambitions above the health, safety and welfare of the people he was sworn to protect is an outrage. i agree with david gregory to take it to plouffe and make him answer these tough questions. this president shirked his responsibility. he went to a fundraiser when he should have been back at the white house because this was not an isolated incident. in fact, i believe he added fuel to the fire by giving credence to the youtube video for further violence against america spread throughout not only the middle east, but the world. the middle east is melting down, and the president finds time to go campaigning? it really is shameful. megyn: dick, mitt romney took so much flak for making a comment about the initial reaction of our embassy in the wake of our attacks which was apologizing for hurting the religious feelings

attack. what's most troubling is one of narratives the obama campaign has laid out is bin laden is dead. they bragged about that forever and al qaeda is in retreat. and you start to wonder, did they basically say do not allow any story to emerge that counters that narrative? is that why for two weeks they total us the libyan incident in benghazi was a popular uprising and not a terrorist attack teak because it ran counter to their campaign narrative. i hope that's not true. you said early on in any presidency there's a moment truth. this president had one in iran. after the false elections there, the people took to the streets, and the president refused to line up with the green revolution there. he said he wasn't going to get involved in iran sovereignty. the result has been disastrous. there is now no well-organized in iran for the rebellion because of the president's lack of engagement. >> schieffer: in the beginning the administration said it appeared it was the result of a spontaneous demonstration. and the president said no he called it an act of terrorism. there are some new
